We are delighted to continue to support the Big Change Luton – a project that will enable town centre visitors to donate to homeless services using new contactless donation points. The contactless donation points are on the outside window of The Travel Centre by the station (just off Bute Street) and in The Mall.

Big Change Luton, supported by Luton BID and more than 20 other organisations, is an initiative of the Luton Homeless Partnership.

Contactless donations of £3, or any amount via our Big Change Luton Just Giving page, will go into a central pot which will be accessible for applications from any one of the services working across Luton to help people build a life away from the street.

Use the links below for a list of the help and support on offer and to make a donation online.

We are all coming together to ensure a coordinated approach to tackling the impacts on people who are sleeping rough and experiencing homelessness.

Gavin O’Brien, Chair of Luton BID

Luton is a generous town. Those of us in the voluntary sector already know that through the amount of donations and support we receive every year. Big Change Luton is a quick and easy way to help.

Matthew Bushnell, Chief Executive Officer at Mary Seacole Housing Association and a member of the Luton Homeless Partnership

People get stuck on the street and Big Change is about trying to change that. We also want our residents, businesses and visitors to understand the offer of support we have here in Luton.

Nobody has to beg for hostel accommodation or a hot meal which can always be provided free at the point of need here in Luton. We have access to drug and mental health treatment and support to help people reconnect with their families.
